Common Types of Civil Rights Violations in TX
In the U.S., civil rights legislation prevents an entity from discriminating against individuals based on a variety of identifying markers they may have.
For example, one of the most famous and well-known pieces of civil rights legislation is the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prevents discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. This legislation has since been modified to prevent employers from discriminating based on sex or gender identity and race in hiring, promotion, or firing practices.
Additionally, civil rights legislation provides citizens with certain inalienable rights in the U.S.A., such as freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of protest, and freedom of the press. However, private entities may be able to develop their own governance for these laws, which is why private businesses and online platforms can decline service to certain individuals based on their behavior or rhetoric.
Some of the most common kinds of civil rights violations include:
- Discrimination in the workplace based on identifying markers such as sex, race, or gender identity;
- Racial violence crimes;
- Discriminating against potential homeowners based on race or national origin;
- Sexual harassment in the workplace;
- Not issuing a notice before removing property;
- Denying an individual their right to an attorney or due process;
- Denying a member of the press their right to freedom of the press;
- Discrimination against an individual based on their religion.
